[1] Same or similar material in other lexica.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Linked with the one at the end of delta 367 by Gaisford; in any case regarded -- surely rightly -- as lacunose by Bernhardy.)
[3] Greek Anthology 6.115.1 (generally attributed to Antipater of Sidon), on the horns and hide of a bull killed by Philip of Macedon; see also mu 580 and omicron 501. Also see Gow and Page (vol. I, 27); (vol. II, 71-73); and this epigram's further extracts at alpha 621, alpha 1542, beta 529, and epsilon 2968. Scholars generally (cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 72)) identify the hunter of the epigram to be Philip V of Macedon (238-179 BCE; cf. phi 355 and OCD4 s.v. Philip(3)). On the Orbelus mountain range in Macedonia, cf. omicron 501.
